Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

Great title, lousy movie. A cautionary quasi-documentary, this hopeless farrago has lurid scenes of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll accompanied by censor-busting dire warnings. The confused premise is held together by a psychiatrist relating the sad tale of college student Alice Trenton who hits the decadent skids and turns into a weed-smoking twilight hippy after a pool party. The final third of this anonymous exploitation quickie is a jumble of psychedelic footage, poetry and frantic jazz as Alice takes the "acid test" at another pot party. Hilarious dialogue aside ("Let me eat the flowers"), this slice of lava lamp lunacy gets very boring pretty fast.
